We have unfortunately learned of another suicide on Santa Cruz yesterday. Visits are the life blood of every inmate, and being cut off from the warm embrace of family is heartbreaking.

The DOC resists every effort by mental health professionals to install more therapy for the inmates. A woman sits in a sterile, colorless environment, with no touching allowed. She is all alone in her mind, and sometimes they just snap from the pressure.

There is no suicide hotline there.
